Public schools' STEM Trifecta earns Governor's Award for Excellence and Innovation

October 27, 2017

 

Governor Terry McAuliffe today announced the first recipients of the Governor’s Award for Excellence and Innovation in Education.

 

Virginia Beach public schools' STEM Trifecta was recognized for creating a platform for all students to join in three types of technical competition: The Robotics Challenge; The Maker Expo; and The Cybersecurity and Cyber Innovation Challenge.

 

The state's  new initiative recognizes outstanding educators and leaders, schools, divisions, and community partners across five categories: closing the achievement gap, community partnerships and collaboration, innovation in education, preparing students for the new Virginia economy; and supporting school readiness.

 

Out of more than 120 nominations, 13 were selected for recognition and honored at the Executive Mansion last night.
